Usually "misdoer" are derived from any larger front of sharing views before, while and after a punished deed.

  • A defined group of elders, defined participator (not only those direct involved).

  • A chance for "public" (or within the committee of "elders") statement, confession and/or rejecting by the accused.

  • An information for others to know about the case: not only to be informed, but also to learn, if right, to avoid similar deeds.

  • Place for reflections, cross-questioning and answers in regard of this "opinion" might be given here with it.
